Abstract
Some contemporary approaches for HR practitioners are identified in this paper in order to make use of human resources (HR) functions as a source of competitive advantage to add value to organisations. A survey was executed via an e-questionnaire using Survey Monkey in 2010 with forecasts for 2020 to obtain longitudinal results. Responses totalled 119 from members of the Human Resource Institute of New Zealand, representing 15.4%. The most important results are: HR should exhibit leadership in the functioning and organising of HR. Conclusions are that HR has a strategic function and practitioners are aware of how to increase HR effectiveness to add value to create future business opportunities.
